The Expressive Teacher: The Art of Creative Teaching and Learning

Good teaching comes directly from the mind, heart, and spirit of a teacher who is fully alive, engaged, and using all their senses; it is about creative risk-taking. The expressive teacher discovers and strengthens vocation in both inner and outer world simultaneously by awakening the creative spirit through the arts and reflection. In this workshop, teachers will explore creative practices to strengthen creative teaching and learning and promote a personal pedagogy that is creative, imaginative, innovative, playful and joyful, while also learning methods for arts integration in the classroom.
